I love bioshock, i finished it 3 times when i owned it. My brother moved out to flordia and i gave him my copy and a couple other things so i could have his 50 inch big screen tv. I stayed up till 4 in the morning countless nights.
I recently rented it again because i miss playing it and it is one of my favorite games.
It really gives you the feeling of being a god being without a death penality.
Because everyone knows god's don't die. As for the current generation of the ps3, xbox 360 and Wii, gaming has been pretty underwhelming. What other game takes you underwater and explore a world with it's own nook's and crannie's. In that sense it is more original then the norm like Rachet and Clank part 55, Metal gear Solid 500, Gran Tourismo 6, Final Fantasy 30, and Super Mario 256. Exaggerating? yes i know but im just making it point.
Taken on it's own merits Bioshock is a very involving, immersive, atmospheric fps.
The game is still alot more challenging then most of you guy's let on. It may night not be as punishing as something like ninja gaiden. But you die as much as you do in half-life. I think that if the vita-chambers revived you but didnt keep your enemies at the same health they were when you died. It would of involved much more tension and pleased you guys that dont like it.
Well, all I can say is "welcome to the cult!"
He'll fit right in next to the Cohen 'Irony' display.
If only we can fix the shotgun wounds in the picture...
There's another game (a german one I think) released recently that's called Red Ocean. Far from being on par with Bioshock at any level, and imho it suffers from quite a few design issues and obsolete physics. But its theme does take you underwater to explore some installations there. It's in this aspect that it's similar to Bioshock, so I had to mention it
